It might have something to do with the fact that they are releasing the deluxe version with all the bonus songs in one place.

Dig Out Your Soul

LM, I remember you saying that you didn't care much for Bag It Up on your first listens to the album. Have you changed your tune on this at all because I seriously love Bag It Up. It's one of my favorites on here.

Right now I'm Outta Time is owning me more than anything, though. Does anyone know what the writing credits are on this album? I know that Noel wrote Bag It Up, Shock, and Falling Down. I would assume Noel wrote High Horse Lady and Waiting for the Rapture, too. Which ones did Liam write? if Liam wrote I'm Outta Time (which I think I remember reading) then it is the best song he's ever written.

I need another listen to two to really make up my mind, but I can't see Bag It Up growing on me much. It seems like a cliche rockin' album opener without much depth. Other than that and Soldier On, this is a pretty damn fine album. Maybe top 10 for the year.

Cool, that's kinda what I figured, except I didn't know that Gem wrote To Be Where There's Life. Thanks, phanan.

Why didn't I just go to Wikipedia myself? No-one knows.

I'm impressed that Gem wrote To Be Where There's Life. That song is cracking.

I have to agree regarding I'm Outta Time. This is Liam's best composition ever. It's just so beautiful. Love the John Lennon part at the end, too.

The Turning and Falling Down are other favorites so far.

I haven't heard the bonus disc yet. Didn't know it had leaked, too. I'll have to listen tonight.

By far the closest they've got to Morning Glory and Definitely Maybe. It's not as good as those albums but it's very strong. I think a couple of songs the calibre of Bag It Up and The Turning, instead of Ain't Got Nothin' and Nature Of Reality, would put it alongside those two albums.

I'd give it at least an 8, maybe 9/10.


They're back.

Wow...I guess I'm pretty much the only Oasis fan who doesn't particularly like this album? After 3 listens through, there still aren't any standout tracks for me, and I've loved pretty much everything that they've done up until this album. This, for me, is a first for an oasis album. Am I really alone here? It seems as though everyone loves it and I'm kind of disappointed in the album.....

There aren't very many standout tracks, but there aren't any terrible ones either. The last time that happened was probably Morning Glory.

Oh, and The Turning. Listen to it again.
